The Brexit Party officially launched their campaign on Friday as Mr Farage called on Boris Johnson to form a pact with his party. Speaking on Friday afternoon, Mr Farage claimed that a deal between his party and the Tories could “win a big majority in Parliament and could deliver a genuine Brexit”.
However, despite repeated offers to Mr Johnson, the Prime Minister has as of yet declined the opportunity to join forces.
Moreover, European Research Group chairman, Steve Baker rejected any form of a pre-Brexit pact with Mr Farage’s party.
With the Tories yet to respond to the Brexit Party’s approach, MEP, Ben Habib revealed the only factor stopping the deal.
Speaking to Express.co.uk at the party’s campaign launch, Mr Habib revealed that Mr Johnson's personality is the one stumbling block to the deal.

Mr Habib said: “Boris Johnson is two things.
“He’s arrogant and he’s motivated by self-interest.
“And it’s a balance between his self-interest and arrogance that determines whether or not he will accept Nigel Farage’s very generous offer.
“If he were sensible, he would take it.
